Summary

The EUREGIO project deals with regions and regionalism in the European Union. It addresses regions as territorial units and sociopolitical entities situated at an intermediate scale, between the local and State (central, federal) levels. At a time of regional reform in France, the objectives are to appraise the knowledge, foster the debate and consider the evolutions of regions and regionalism in the context of the European construction, with examples and illustrations from the member-States of the European Union.

Argument

The EUREGIO project deals with regions and regionalism in the European Union. It addresses regions as territorial units and sociopolitical entities situated at an intermediate scale, between the local and State (central, federal) levels. At a time of regional reform in France, the objectives are to appraise the knowledge, foster the debate and consider the evolutions of regions and regionalism in the context of the European construction, with examples and illustrations from the member-States of the European Union.

The project is based on a network of academic, professional stakeholders and civil partners
developed by University of Lille 1, one of the most internationalised universities in
France. The project is particularly linked to the master curriculum EUROStudies (European
Studies for Territorial and Urban Development), within the master in Urbanism
and Planning (Lille Institute of Planning and Urbanism, University of Lille 1).

The project combines teaching, research and public events with project partners. Several
deliverables for diffusion and dissemination will impact on target groups : scientific
and academic publications, reports on the events and activities, outcomes of the
student workshops linked with the labour market and conference in order to engage
dialogue with civil society.

The thematic is approached with 3 key-words that correspond to 3 Lille Jean Monnet
Workshops (2JML) :

  • Diversity (of regions)
  • Complementarity (of regional governance)
  • Cooperation (between regions)

These reflections will be developed and enriched all through the additional activities of
the project and in the final Lille Jean Monnet Conference.
